A journey back to Middle Earth…

Inspired by Gaudi

1 Comment

Today was a beautiful day which we spent in an amazing city. For me the day was all about discovering and learning about the famous architect Antoni Gaudi.
A city tour in an open top bus took as to many of Gaudi’s important buildings, including the Basilica and Temple Sagrada Familia which Gaudi designed and where he is buried. This amazing building has been under construction since 1882 and is still not completed.
We got off the bus at Park Güell and explored this beautiful park, watched the tourists, took lots of photos, & enjoyed a picnic lunch in the shade of palm trees some of which were nesting parrots. We also decided to visit the house in park, now a museum,l in which Gaudi lived for nearly 20 years.
Day one of our Barcelona visit ended with passing by the stadium of the Barcelona FC, (to the boys excitement) and tapas, with squid rings and patatas bravas as favourites!
